If those opposed to Arizona doing what the Federal Government is suppose to do - guard our borders - then perhaps they would have solutions to our border crisis. They don't! They take Arizona to task yet say nothing about Federal inaction.

California Penal Code, Section 833-851.90

Quote:
834b. (a) Every law enforcement agency in California shall fully
cooperate with the United States Immigration and Naturalization
Service regarding any person who is arrested if he or she is
suspected of being present in the United States in violation of
federal immigration laws.
(b) With respect to any such person who is arrested, and suspected
of being present in the United States in violation of federal
immigration laws, every law enforcement agency shall do the
following:
(1) Attempt to verify the legal status of such person as a citizen
of the United States, an alien lawfully admitted as a permanent
resident, an alien lawfully admitted for a temporary period of time
or as an alien who is present in the United States in violation of
immigration laws. The verification process may include, but shall not
be limited to, questioning the person regarding his or her date and
place of birth, and entry into the United States, and demanding
documentation to indicate his or her legal status.

(2) Notify the person of his or her apparent status as an alien
who is present in the United States in violation of federal
immigration laws and inform him or her that, apart from any criminal
justice proceedings, he or she must either obtain legal status or
leave the United States.
(3) Notify the Attorney General of California and the United
States Immigration and Naturalization Service of the apparent illegal
status and provide any additional information that may be requested
by any other public entity.
(c) Any legislative, administrative, or other action by a city,
county, or other legally authorized local governmental entity with
jurisdictional boundaries, or by a law enforcement agency, to prevent
or limit the cooperation required by subdivision (a) is expressly
prohibited.

Here is an interesting email I got today:
You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal".
Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California .


Joe Legal works in construction, has a Social Security Number and makes $25.00 per hour with taxes deducted.


Jose Illegal also works in construction, has NO Social Security Number, and gets paid $15.00 cash "under the table".


Ready? Now pay attention...


Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1000.00 per week, or $52,000.00 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has
$31,231.00.


Jose Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has
$31,200...00.


Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has
$24,031.00.


Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.


Joe Legal makes too much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has
$18,031.00.


Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has
$31,200.00.


Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month, or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has
$9,631.00.


Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $
31,200.00.


Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for insurance. Joe Legal now has
$7,231.00.


Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinkin' insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.


Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, etc.


Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.


Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work.


Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.


Joe Legal's and Jose Illegal's children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegal's children get a government sponsored lunch. Jose Illegal's children have an after school ESL program. Joe Legal's children go home.


Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.

Yeah, someone commits an arrestable offense or is arrested under suspicion of committing an arrestable offense, then has their immigration status checked is EXACTLY the same thing as seeing a Mexican doing nothing wrong on the street and demanding their "papers".

The one negative tax impact is that they act to transfer money from the states who pay most of the services, especially education, to the federal government which gets most of the tax benefits.

On average, undocumented workers earn about $2 less per hour than documented workers in the same jobs, a difference which accurately represents the added risk and expense of hiring them.

When compared by age, the crime and incarceration rates for Mexican immigrants are roughly equal to the general population and much better than most other legal and illegal immigrant groups."

That being the case, I suggest a completely new policy. Let's allow more Mexican immigrants and let's start deporting Americans. At least those on welfare and food stamps.

Yes, and if what you claimed were actually the case, then there might be some concern.

Instead what has happened is that the federal law has been written into state law and thus, when someone commits an arrestable offense or is arrested under suspicion of committing an arrestable offense, when being asked about I.D. they are also asked about their immigration status. Before this law they could not be asked about their immigration status by state law officials. If they are discovered to be illegal, in the midst of being questioned about another crime, then they can be arrested for that crime.

Quote:
The act makes it a state misdemeanor crime for an alien to be in Arizona without carrying registration documents required by federal law,[1]:§ 3 and obligates police to make an attempt, when practicable during a "lawful stop, detention or arrest made by a law enforcement official",[20] to determine a person's immigration status if there is reasonable suspicion that the person is an illegal alien.[1]:§ 2 Police may arrest a person if there is probable cause that the person is an alien not in possession of required registration documents;[1]:§ 3 a person arrested cannot be released without confirmation of the person's legal immigration status by the federal government pursuant to § 1373(c) of Title 8 of the United States Code.

Have you read the bill?

In other words there's no point in talking to people like that.

They've stopped posting because some of them have (yet again) been banned or because they know their crumbling utopian dream has been far from realized.

People become illegal immigrants in one of three ways: by entering without authorization or inspection, by staying beyond the authorized period after legal entry, or by violating the terms of legal entry.[16] Their mode of violation breaks down as follows: If the suspect entered legally without inspection, then the suspect would be classified as either a Non-Immigrant Visa Overstayer (4 to 5.5 million) or a Border Crossing Card Violator (250,000 to 500,000). If the suspect entered illegally without inspection, then the suspect would be classified as having Evaded the Immigration Inspectors and Border Patrol (6 to 7 million).[17]

The thing that such data fails to note is that most services are not received directly by illegal immigrants but via their children. Their children are often American citizens and as such can apply for and receive services on behalf of their parents. So you are technically correct that food stamps for example are not received by illegal immigrants. If the illegal immigrant has three children who are American citizens though, that parent will receive the monies to which their children are entitled as citizens.

I seem to remember someone getting banned awhile ago for a classless Ted Kennedy comment. So it's not really an exclusive club is it?

No they've stopped because they realize when the other side stops dealing with reality and is just reacting without thinking there's little point to a conversation. You can bring as many rightwing extremists in here as you want trumptman. Fill the forum with nothing but rightwing spam and the reality will remain the same. AI could become totally conservative but the right will still have egg on it's face for years to come. Why you say? because of where we are and the previous decade. You know? The lost decade.

Good luck on changing the world with your rhetoric.

If you have to ask the question then it's useless to explain to you and probably means you'd do the same. Like I've been trying to say. The more left leaning members here ( at least the one's not willing to play the Troll game ) have either left for greener pastures ( Applenova ) or have just left.

As for you going after almost every post I make in an attempt to get me to pay attention to you when I've put you on ignore is an illustration of why ignore is only partially effective. If you really want to lock horns everytime ( I don't even do that with SDW ) go right ahead. I myself don't have the time for this childish game.

As far as Obama goes I know you're probably seeing all of this as an opportunity for some Libertarian candidate or some other 3rd party venue. Well good luck with that.

It's only partially effective if you choose to not ignore me. I'm sorry, I'm not ignoring you. I choose not use that function simply because there are time when I decide I want to comment on something any poster might post. I don't feel the need to let some of your posts pass without comment just because you have chosen to ignore me. If you don't like it, tough.

I have no idea what was said. As a human being I'm always saddened when another human being dies. That said, I don't really care for Teddy Kennedy and see him only as a rich, spoiled power-monger.

As a practical matter of politics, right now I think I would be. But there's a lot of time between now and then and we don't even have an idea of who would be running against him, so speculation (on anyone's part) at this point is basically just wild guess work. But, right now he's looking a lot like Carter.

Go ahead.




So what? Why do you care? You're ignoring me, remember?




Good for you.









Why would I mind? You are free to reply to, respond to or comment on anything you like. It's better if these comments are useful and insightful, but I won't hold my breath.




As a practical matter of politics, right now I think I would be. But there's a lot of time between now and then and we don't even have an idea of who would be running against him, so speculation (on anyone's part) at this point is basically just wild guess work. But, right now he's looking a lot like Carter.

Well I hate to burst your bubble ( I knew you'd say something like this ) but I've just watched several political talk shows with analysts who say the same thing I'm thinking. The Republicans still don't have any strong leaders or a new approach to our problems. And they still have the bad press from before when they were in charge. If the job numbers don't take a sharp dive or we have a double dip recession he stands a really good chance. He's not the first president to have problems in his first term and then bounce right back. Reagan and Clinton were two they mentioned. But we'll just have to see.
They didn't mention any 3rd parties.

He said it on the day is the problem. There's better times to bring up negative views and especially when there are many who don't share them. Hey maybe there were other reasons for the ban also. I'm not the mod.

So you found a bunch of people who agree with you, therefore I'm wrong. Whatever. It's more than two years away! As I said, just about anyone that anything speculates is wild guess work right now.

From what I've seen at this time, I agree. Of course I don't really follow the Republican establishment so I have no idea (and I'm guessing you don't either) whether there is a candidate in the wings who we've never really heard of before. Remember we never really heard of Bill Clinton (or even Reagan or Carter) as a potential Presidential candidate until closer to the elections. In fact Clinton wasn't even considered a serious candidate once he was even heard of!

I disagree. He's going to need a sharp drop in unemployment to save him right now.

Right, but the economy hasn't bounced right back yet and there are already early indicators that the "double dip" is on the horizon.

And, in that 1.5 years of total control (following 2 years of Congressional control) they've managed to do a pretty good job screwing things up. I think the American public is beginning to realize this now.

BTW, I don't really see this so much in terms of Democrats vs. Republicans as much as I see it as Democrats+Republicans (Republicrats or Democans if you like) vs. freedom and the American people.

Doesn't your country require all citizens to carry 'papers' at all times? I am not well versed in Chinese law, but I imagine punishment for illegal trespassers in China is a bit more severe than a hot meal and deportation hearings.

You have hereby included yourself in the "frame", nice going.

Not the end of story.

My info just proved that your assertion about 1 and 2, which you then logically leaped to declare to say anyone who didn't concur is racist... is complete and utter bullshit, for lack of a better phrase. I linked and quoted the info that showed they are in fact illegal.

So people wanting to include them or who aren't just trying to hide racist motivations per your twisted logic. They are just wanting the law followed all around.

Reasonable Suspicion

Quote:
Precedent

In Terry v. Ohio, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that a person can be stopped and briefly detained by a police officer based on a reasonable suspicion of involvement in a crime. If the officer additionally has reasonable suspicion that the person is armed, the officer may perform a search of the person's outer garments for weapons. Such a detention does not violate the Fourth Amendment prohibition on unreasonable searches and seizure, though it must be brief. Reasonable suspicion does not provide grounds for arrest; however, an arrest can be made if facts discovered during the detention provide probable cause that the suspect has committed a crime.

and....

Quote:
Courts have ruled (Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968)) that a stop on reasonable suspicion may be appropriate in the following cases: when a person possesses many unusual items which would be useful in a crime like a wire hanger and is looking into car windows at 2am, when a person matches a description of a suspect given by another police officer over department radio, or when a person runs away at the sight of police officers who are at common law right of inquiry (founded suspicion). However, reasonable suspicion may not apply merely because a person refuses to answer questions, declines to allow a voluntary search, or is of a suspected race or ethnicity.

I've quoted the actual law. I've quoted the definition and cases that provide precedent. Anyone who claims random stops can be made based merely on skin color is simply trying to mislead. We can get into why they would want to mislead on this matter, but the point is true that they are trying to mislead.

Well since not having valid papers is now against the law, do you not see that there may be instances of suspicion about whether someone is breaking the law of not having valid papers?

Trumpt,

Do you think a "means verbal or nonverbal communication by a gesture or a nod that would indicate to a reasonable person that a person is willing to be employed" will hold up to the Reasonable Suspicion court decisions? Perhaps there are other court decisions that are more applicable?

Section 5 of the Arizona law is about cracking down on the point of pickup for dayworkers. I've looked for similar Federal laws but have not been successful. Since you have stated that it is federal law that was written into the Arizona law perhaps you could point me in the right direction.

It's not automatically against the law and being detained isn't the same thing as being arrested or imprisoned.

First by federal law, all people here in various legal capacities are supposed to carry their paperwork on them.

Second, it notes INVOLVEMENT in a crime, which shows action. The examples all show action. Driving on a suspended or expired license is a crime but it doesn't mean they pull you over to check. The link gave examples. You hold items to commit a crime, you run from a cop, another cop radios a description and you believe you have the one suspect, not every person is a suspect, etc.

This isn't about random stops.

Now the real problem of course is that this is so easy to get around for anyone who is legal. You get pulled over for speeding and show your license, of even if you don't have your license, you give who you are and you match the general profile and get a ticket for driving without you license.

If you are illegal, you now get pulled over, get a ticket for driving without your license, get charged for being in the state illegally and get handed over to ICE.

People who are decrying this law don't want that. They don't want enforcement of the law. They simply lie and say they do. They are like people who want peace when Bush is in office and now no longer care that Obama still has two wars, and still hasn't closed Gitmo but no longer care because of the D in the title. These people want OPEN borders which is not right for a number of reasons.

Dayworkers is an entirely different subject. The point to remember is that the federal and state legal systems all have their own sets of everything. They have their own laws, courts and prisons. You can be found guilty of being a day laborer in Arizona state law, be sentenced in their courts and sent to their prisons. If the federal law says nothing about it, then it does nothing about it. Before this law, only the federal system actually declared it against the law to be an illegal immigrant in Arizona. So you could be arrested, charged, and sentenced in the federal system but not the state. This law merely copied the language related to being an illegal immigrant into the state law so that the state police, courts and prisons can undertake the same actions on this matter, but that doesn't mean the federal and state systems will undertake the same actions on ALL matters related to immigration.

Most people in southern Arizona already 'look Mexican.' There are signs, however, such as type of dress, nervousness, carrying a Mexican National ID card, etc. They can also only ask if they are being questioned for another crime, not as a primary stop or investigation.

I figured you to be Chinese, what, being named after an Asian doll.
Yet you condemn Arizona, while your country of residence has far, far stricter law enforcement concerning identity of residents.

As far as I know, this is not stated in the law explicitly. And it needs to be, for this law to be acceptable.

Never heard of a "tonton" doll. What is it, a sex doll or something? I know tonton is a common term of endearment for "uncle" in French, and I've been asked if I'm French a handful of times.

You do know the difference between Hong Kong and China, right? Hong Kong residents were never, ever, in history, required to "carry the red book". Your ignorance is showing.
